The next time your child is feeling frustrated, sad, or angry, be patient. Dr. John Gottman says how parents respond to the emotions of their children has a huge impact on them. Gottman says discouraging or dismissing your child's emotions can be harmful. He explains how being an "emotion coach" for your child can set her up for a healthier, more successful life. John Gottman is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Washington and co–founder of the Gottman Institute in Seattle. His many books include The Relationship Cure and The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. Dr. John Gottman spoke at Town Hall in Seattle on March 5, 2008 as part of ParentMap magazine's Pathways lecture series.
